The Redskins' 2019 season is finally over. It ended in the disaster it deserved.
Washington turned the ball over twice in its first four plays. Eventually they lost 47-16 in a football game that started as a rock fight and ended in a blowout.
The Redskins defense surrendered over 30 points for the eighth time this year. That is half their games. It includes the last three, two of which they have surrendered more than 40 points.
It was a fitting way to exit for defensive coordinator Greg Manusky, who will certainly be out of a job by tomorrow morning. In fairness to him, this one was as much about the players playing the game, or, more accurately. those not. The Redskins were without all of their regular starters at corner and safety. They were also without their backups at safety. The longest tenured Washington DB was Aaron Colvin, who received his first defensive snaps in mid-November against the Jets.
Offensively, the lack of weapons was on display with Terry McLaurin out. Steven Sims, Jr. was easily the most impactful player for Washington in that regard. Adrian Peterson also had a nice game with 78 yards, finishing two yards shy of 900 on the year.
None of that matters.
There's a very good chance a number of coaches are dismissed this evening upon returning to Ashburn. If not, the firings will start early tomorrow morning.
